This easy cocktail combines vodka and chocolate liqueur with strong coffee. You don’t even need espresso. In fact, this homemade cold brew would be great for making this drink. It works well in my bourbon iced coffee.
Sometimes I am too full for dessert. However, I will indulge in a great after-dinner cocktail. If it can sub as dessert even better.
You can never go wrong with the combination of coffee and chocolate. Coffee Crisp is still a favourite in our house.

Coffee needs to be strong. As I mentioned cold brew is a great choice. This martini can be made without espresso. Ground espresso beans in a drip coffee maker work great. Chocolate coffee pods are wonderful. In fact, for this recipe, I tried instant espresso to see if it would work, and it did.
Chocolate liqueurs come in many varieties. Pick your favourite. For this drink, I used a chocolate raspberry liqueur.
Vodka comes in many flavours. I used plain in this recipe. Experiment with some flavoured options and create your own special cocktail blend. Grab some coffee vodka for an extra coffee kick.
Garnish to make it special. I used dark chocolate shavings on top of the foam. Rim the glass with cocoa, or add a chocolate covered strawberry to the rim.
Vodka produces a smooth taste. Gin has a botanical taste. It is a personal choice and what you like.
Shaking is the key. Shake for 15-30 seconds to properly aerate and be sure to pour the drink immediately into the glass.
So many to choose from. Here are a few: Classic, Dirty, Bikini, French, Lemon Drop, Pomegranate, Chocolate and Espresso. What is your favourite?
